PSW #757 – Ev Kontsevoy, Casey Ellis

Hackers rarely break through crypto or exploit fancy zero days. Most of the time they simply login using stolen credentials. Managing passwords, keys and other forms of secrets does not work at scale. In this segment we’ll look into a more radical approach to infrastructure security: getting rid of secrets entirely and moving to access control based on physical properties of humans and machines.

PSW #755 – Thomas Kinsella

Analyst burnout and the talent shortage are creating environments where teams are stressed out, overwhelmed, and frustrated. Security Operations managers (or anyone managing teams of security analysts) must empower their analysts with solutions that can make them more effective at their job. Thomas Kinsella joins to discuss why No-code automation is the ultimate solution to do that! Then, in the Security News: you liked the browser so much we put a browser in your browser, hackers are using sock puppets, the patch that kills performance, detect eavesdroppers, no more passwords, one-click account hijack thanks to JavaScript, the return of Shakata Ga Nai, GIFShell (or is it jifshell), Lexmark firmware confusion, and searching for a long lost copy of OS/2!

PSW #754 – John Hammond

John Hammond joins us today as we start off the show talking about Cybersecurity education! Training and education is a constant conversation within the cybersecurity community, but it doesn't have to be a hard problem to solve. We will discuss how to bring both valuable and actionable information into the industry and how that makes an impact, even in unexpected ways -- for better or for worse. Then, in the Security News: Lastpas breach, long live John McAfee, Macs getting fewer updates, CPE correlating to CVE, clicky clicky hacks, anti-cheat is not anti-hack, new LVFS release, $8 million zero day, don't sign crappy code, a very handy PI and a site that lets you send poop anonymously is hacked (it was a pretty crappy exploit)!

PSW #753 – Davi Ottenheimer, Daniel Niefeld, Zachary Stashis

There's a lot of worry about "fakes" especially in a world rapidly adopting AI/ML, so it's time for solutions. "Solid" is the W3C open standard, extending HTTPS, to upgrade the Web with security paradigms that solve for data integrity. Distributed systems naturally break through digital moats, free control through proper ownership, thus helping expand and achieve the best of the Internet.

About

If you’re looking for a bunch of us security nerds to get together and talk shop, then Paul’s Security Weekly is for you. This show features interviews with folks in the security community; technical segments, which are just that, very technical; and security news, which is an open discussion forum for the hosts to express their opinions about the latest security headlines, breaches, new exploits and vulnerabilities, “not” politics, “cyber” policies and more. The topics vary greatly and the atmosphere is relaxed and very conversational. This is a longer show, typically 2+ hours, for those with a long commute.
